While there is plenty of information to be found on how to start a sportswear brand in the UK, much of this is conflicting and confusing.
The information available is generally not really aimed at the small sportswear business owner on a limited budget. It tends to be compiled for larger businesses with bigger budgets, and time on their hands.
These larger businesses can afford to follow conventional guidelines, and to take years thoroughly researching and preparing for the big launch day.
The new sportswear brand entrepreneur needs to be an expert in every aspect of running a sportswear business by conducting extensive research into marketing, brand identity, competitors, range planning, financing, and everything else.
